A man was walking or jogging southbound on the sidewalk on Lincoln Boulevard when a car that was traveling in the same direction veered off the road and struck a light pole before striking the pedestrian, said LAPD Sgt. Stephanie Krajchir.

“The driver did not stay at [the] scene or render any aid … so we don’t know who she is,” Krajchir said.

The victim, believed to be about 60 years old, was transported to a hospital. Krajchir described his injuries as “very, very severe. Possibly life-threatening.”

A description of the driver, who remained at large, was not immediately available.

The southbound lanes on Lincoln Boulevard were closed while authorities conducted an investigation.
